With the newly released version 2.01, Waypoint navigation and Routes are now available in the android version of iRegatta. The gap between the android and the iOS version is closing in - but there is still some work to do...
Version 1.50 has been released, including a statistics view with Max Speed, Trip Odometer, Polar diagrams and a performance bar on the race view, comparing your current performance with your polars.
Make sure to set the wind informations correct for polars to make sense.
A first "Basic" release of iRegatta for android has been published on the android market.
This first version has all the basic features for racing, based on the internal GPS of the device.
You have speed (SOG), course (COG) and VMG, based on a typed in Wind Direction.
You get the lift indicator.
You have you speed and VMG history graph.
Due to spam, the forum was shut down and deleted a while ago. I finaly found the time to install a security feature, to keep spambots out of the forum - I hope...
So forum is now available again.
Apple agreed to make an "Expedit review" of version 2.61, to fix the bug on the iPad version 2.60.
So all you iRegatta iPad users should be ready to roll again.
Unfortunately there was a bug in the iPad version, that somehow got through Apples review unnoticed. A bug fix (version 2.61) has been submitted and a request for expedited review has been filed. So hopefully a new version will be available soon.
In case Apple should choose to deny an expedited review, it might take up to 2 weeks to get the new version approved by Apple.
Sorry for the inconvenience. Hope the new features will make it up to you once the update is approved.

iRegatta 2.00 will soon be released. There are two mayor improvements:
1. iRegatta is now a "Universal app", meaning it now runs on iPhone/iPod touch and iPad, and not just a small iPhone view on the iPad.
2. iRegatta can now get instrument information from NMEA devices using WiFi (like iNmea). This means iRegatta will work on iPod touch and iPads without GPS, if your boat has a device that broadcasts NMEA 0183 information from your boats instruments via WiFi.
iRegatta 1.30 has been approved and is now available in the AppStore.
This new version has a couple of new features like:
-Create waypoint by taking cross bearings
-Polar diagram and trip statistics
-Black or White display
-Enlarge your favorite readout on the main view.
